Peter Byrne, & Conor Mahony
From Drimnagh in Dublin, Peter Byrne had been floating around the Dublin Folk scene since the early seventies. Peter’s demeanor is that of a quiet modest man who just loved listening to music and song, and would sing a song when asked. However, the reaction to his voice and delivery of the song always enthralled the listeners. It was in later years, after his early retirement from CIE, that he met acclaimed Newbridge musician Conor Mahony, that something just clicked and sure now you can't keep him off the stage!

GAG
Gerry Madigan and George Kaye made their separate marks on Ireland’s live music scene in two phenomenally successful bands of the late 1960s and 1970s, and both of them did it by opening the ears of ballroom audiences to the sounds of authentic Americana. The vibrant dancehall circuit, dominated by big showbands, was already changing under the influence of new bands with ‘Country & Irish’ instrumentation and repertoire. George Kaye, in the Smokey Mountain Ramblers, and Gerry Madigan in the Cotton Mill Boys pushed the envelope further, changed the way audiences viewed country music, and set new standards of excellence.
